Fodor's Expert Review Café Prima Pasta

$$ Mid-Beach Italian

If Tony Soprano lived in Miami, this is where you'd find him. This famous, bustling Italian restaurant is infused with the energy of the Argentine Cea family, whose clan cooks, serves, and operates this place, while somehow finding the time to pose for photos with the hundreds of celebrities who have eaten here over the years (whose photos you'll see on the walls). Everything is made in-house—from the fragrant rosemary butter to the pasta, which tastes best as crab-stuffed raviolotti or as homemade squid-ink linguine, served with seafood in a lobster sauce.
